Marek Rogala is the CTO at Appsilon Data Science, where he oversees data science and software teams. Passionate about helping people grow, people-side of software engineering, recent advances in machine learning, and functional programming. He previously did software engineering at Google and at Domino Data Lab, where he worked on enabling data scientists experiment and collaborate effectively. If Marek isn't working he is probably singing in a choir or baking bread.
The talk is about new possibilities arising from applying deep learning to satellite imagery.
Satellite data changes the game as it allows to reach information not available to business nowadays and to travel in time. Combined with deep learning techniques, it delivers unique insights that have never been available before.Using deep learning on satellite data can deliver insights no human can.
Satellite data is huge and non-obvious. By being able to go back to an arbitrary time in history we can prevent frauds. We can build forecasts and observe events we wouldn’t have access to otherwise.
We’ll explore a number of emerging use cases and the common traits behind them. I will show how our R department is working with satellite data and how we use Shiny to build decision support systems for business.
